Former Jam Alley TV presenter Vinolia Mashego has passed away.
Mashego popularly knows as V-Mash was currently a host of Bheka Sik’bambile on Moja Love.
The family said Mashego passed away in her sleep.
V-Mash, as Mashego was affectionately known, was a prominent actress on various Sepedi SABC dramas in the 1980s.
But it is as a presenter on music show Jam Alley that she is most famous for, so much so that even today, popular catchphrases such "azange bangani" she coined are still used and instantly linked to her.
Fans and media personalities have remembered her as a trailblazer in the industry.

Last shoot day with you.
You were so emotional but pushed through the pain. Said you would deal with it later.
Always had jokes, calls never anything under 15 min, bombarded with messages to always call you back.
Iyo VMash Iyo!
